I wanted to separate these builds and man do I ever have so many projects. This is one of my favorite cars. 1966 olds 442 in MM Phoenician Yellow. The black top is Krylon high heat BBQ black.

First mock up with Pegasus chrome T's. I was going to go stock wheels. But these did not fit my other ride.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks, here is another progress shot. Now I'm working in the midst of Christmas decorating and canning vegetables. Sadly I ran myself out of the hobby room lol

Does this kit come with poseable steering or did you make some modifications to it?

Monty, no I just did not glue the spindles between the subframe and control arms. You have to use clamps to allow the glue to dry.

Thank you Dr.

I'm not doing anything special to the interior, as this is just a build to put on the shelf. Here is a quick shot of it.
